Forum: web Subject: Re: Wayback is like a thief

As much as I hate to get involved in discussions on this subject (as people rarely listen and do not actually debate normally), you can always send your request to info archive org making that a normal email address. Each manual removal has to be individually researched for the validity of the claim. The Archive gets a lot of these a day and there are only one (sometimes two including me) person who works on these. It's not even the only Lance does as the Office Manager, it's just a part of the job.

I may live to regret getting involved in this discussion, but I thought that you would like to know where to send your requests. Please read through the policy. It's what we follow as much as possible. I'm not working more than one day a week, so I'm not a regular Archive employee anymore.

Hi Paul! Thank you for confirming that you can indeed send your requests to that address. I *did* send an e-mail to it after Sarah Rees Brennan's request on this forum went unanswered (http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=216950). I've never received a reply, which made me wonder if the mails to that address are actually looked at. Only later someone happened to make me aware that the webpages were already removed (http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=220348). I don't know if my mail contributed to that, but I'm nevertheless glad to hear that the address is not abandoned, and that help is not completely absent.

Cheers,
Face
